David Bradley of SpectroscopyNow.com writes about a discovery that could bring quantum computing a step closer. Ames Laboratory physicist Slava Dobrovitski was a co-author of a paper published by researchers at the University of California at Santa Barbara, "Gigahertz Dynamics of a Strongly Driven Single Quantum Spin" that appeared in the Nov. 19 online Science Express.
